These guys are tough, but after the winter-week we just survived, I think we were all itching to get outside and do some work. Our AO is the most-cared for park in the City, so sidewalks are well salted and absolutely wet. Don’t know how to incorporate ground-work w/o getting gloves soaked…. so, the men braved it out and no complaints by end of beatdown.
